Pic Of The Week: TVR-tastic
We unearth a TVR treasure trove in a desk drawer
A day or two ago RacingPete, during a rummage through his desk drawers (he calls it tidying up; we call it displacement activity) emerged from a particularly deep excavation brandishing an innocent-looking purple CD.
And the words on the purple background? TVR Media information, along with a copyright year - 1999. This, then, was a press pack from the halcyon days of 1990s TVR, with the promise of some juicy hi-res images within. Provided the rough life of a case-less CD living at the bottom of a desk drawer hadn't rendered it useless, of course.
We've chosen the Chimaera-at-sunset shot as our star pic, partly because it's the most atmospheric image, but mostly because Chim-owning Garlick has promised to make me tea all day if we use it...
Oh, and we've also popped a selection of the CD's other highlights for your perusal below, because we're nice like that.
Update: By popular demand, here's some hi-res attachments for the Speed 12 image...
Blind faith and prayer were preferred over real testing.
The number of times I resorted to taking the roof off and climbing over the door to get to work... Ahh those were the days.. lets all party like its 1999 ( for it was) Poor old chim living outside at the side of the road, and being thrashed to within an inch of its life every day.... never missed a beat other than frozen door locks... 2 months as a garage queen years later and the diff died !!!
